Ahmadi securitymen arrested three Asian expatriates, raided a liquor factory in Mangaf area and confiscated 600 bottles and 293 barrels of locally manufactured liquor as well as equipment used for manufacturing liquor. According to security sources, Ahmadi securitymen were patrolling Mangaf area, based on instructions from Assistant Undersecretary for Public Security Affairs of Ministry of Interior Major General Abdul Fattah Al-Ali, when they noticed a van and ordered the driver to stop for inspection.
However, the latter ignored the order and sped away. Securitymen chased the van until it stopped after a while and four individuals including the driver jumped out of the van and ran. Securitymen ran after them and managed to catch one of them, noticing that the other three had entered a house. They checked the civil ID of the suspect they caught and discovered that he is an Asian expatriate.
Securitymen then went inside the house to realize it is a liquor factory. They arrested two suspects while the fourth suspect managed to escape. They confiscated the barrels and bottles of liquor as well as the equipment used for manufacturing liquor. All suspects were referred with the confiscated items to the concerned authorities for necessary legal action against them. Securitymen are carrying out investigations to find and arrest the runaway suspect.
